, a new pew research poll shows romney leading by 4 points. this race is tightening. things are moving, gist like mitt romney. suddenly he loves covering people with pre-existing conditions and suddenly mr. romney is ignoring the fact that his tax plan is a give away to the rich. the only problem, that's not the mr. romney who's running for president and this weekend newt gingrich, one of his top surrogates let the cat out of the bag. >> standing on the stage with you in arizona, this is what mitt romney said. number one, i said today we're going to cut taxes on everyone across the country by 20%, including the top 1%. mr. speaker, you mentioned that your opponent, mitt romney, had a problem with being dishonest and the primary of my question is, was he dishonest when he said that? >> i think it's clear he changed. >> clearly he's changed. another romney surrogate even admitted it. >> that's all you're seeing here. it's very typical. we we strong conservatives understand that. it's campaign strategy. >> it's typical. just campaign strategy. that's all you're seeing here. very typical.
that shows romney up a great bit. now the real news begins, the state by state by state polls. >> four weeks away. can you believe it. >> we have a few to report on this morning. >> the election is coming. the fight for battleground states, less than four weeks until election day in ohio where there are 18 electoral votes up for grabs. a new cnn poll conducted after the debate shows the president leading by four points, 51-47. romney has gained four points there in just over a week. in new hampshire a new wmur granite state poll showses in last nine day he's whittled the 15-point lead down to 6 points. national polls has romney edging ahead of barack obama for the first time this year. the question is, is this what happens naturally, or was this spurred by the debate? >> it doesn't happen naturally. it happens after an earthquake. >> really? >> there was a political earthquake last week, the likes of which i've never seen in american politics, where a shift happened that dramatically in one night. donny, you've seen these things. i had somebody tell me you need seven positive impressions to
today points to a very tight race. according to "new york times"/cbs news poll, mitt romney leads the president by one point in colorado. tight across the country. last month the president up one point in that state n virginia, president obama's lead from last month grew slightly. in wisconsin, the candidates also within the margin of error after the president lost the point from last month and mitt romney gained two. again this is all within the margin of error. a day after mitt romney, meanwhile, told the des moines register he would not pursue any abortion related legislation as president, mr. romney looked to clarify that position while campaigning in ohio. there he told reporters he would take action from the white house to reduce the number of abortions in the country. >> i think i said time and again i'm a pro-life candidate. i'll be a pro-life president. the actions i'll take immediately are to remove funding for planned parenthood. >> remove funding for planned parenthood. he said he would ban taxpayer funding for groups that perform abortions overseas. in an interview wi
. the wind right now seems to be at mitt romney's back, and it will be interesting to see where all the polls show the ohio race to be at a moment at which president obama is having the toughest headwinds that he's experienced the past three months and mitt romney finally has the wind at his back. it's interesting for us to see where ohio is in all of this because ohio, as you all know very well, a republican is not won the presidency without ohio. if mitt romney is unable to win it, it limits his chances to get to the 270 votes. >> do we have any more insight into the polls closing in ohio specifically? we keep saying the debate and performances. was there something substantive that perhaps we're seeing hit a note with particularly people in the midwest regarding this shift, if it is a solid shift? >> what we did notice in the pugh poll was there was a shift for mitt romney in the midwest. he made gains there, and that is pretty significant. as far as what ended up happening, i can't give you a good answer for that. i think the media's portrayal of the debate, everyone declaring that preside
, romney 49. if you can keep up up at this point, 49/46. the state polls caught your eye as well, michigan in particular. you look at those numbers. >> right. in the michigan poll it was a survey that had president obama holding onto a narrow three-point lead down from a 10--point lead earlier last month. that poll was kind of what we saw. i was talking to a republican looking at all the polling numbers and races who said, when the races were outside the margin of error, they're now in the margin of error, when president obama was up maybe 1, 2, 3 points they're tied or president obama up one. so the central thing is this race has tightened. mitt romney has seen all the polling numbers move in the direction. i don't think we know that in complete verdict where this race is. a lot of democrats are bracing for a close race a few months ago and they're bracing for one now. >> mark murray, thank you very much. you'll join us as at the half hour mark. let's bring in the "news nation" political panel. with us from afar is steve deyse a nationally syndicated radio talk show host. we allowed you t
, very energetic. there is a lot of work to be made up here for this romney campaign. polls show that the governor still trails the president but he has cut into that lead by about half over the last couple of weeks. and we can also tell you that both paul ryan and mitt romney were on the record yesterday about this situation down in libya, and what vice president joe biden said in thursday night's debate. the republicans believe they caught him contradicting the state department. listen to what these two republicans had to say on the trail yesterday. >> the vice president directly contradicted the sworn testimony of state department officials. he's doubling down on denial. >> this is not what leadership looks like. we need clarity, not confusion. we need accountability, and no more excuses. >>> now ohio may ultimately be the state that turns this election one way or another. as we mentioned earlier the president still holding a lead here. obviously the auto bailout a big factor alex. about one in eight jobs are related to the auto industry. the president approved that bailout of
think this is a case of going back to the formula that had helped build that lead in the polls prior to that first debate. you know, the so-called likability gap. the idea that mitt romney is out of touch with the average american. going back to this issue of his taxes not only has he not released his tax returns, as many presidential candidates have in the past, of course, but he's effectively paid a 14% rate on his taxes, and that is something that is a lower rate paid on investment income. let's have a listen to a little bit of that ad. >> you've paid 14% in federal taxes. that's the capital gains rate. is that fair to the guy who makes $50,000 and paid a higher rate than you did? so you think it is fair? >> yeah, i think it's -- it's the right way you encourage economic growth. >> lower tax rates for him than us. is that the way to grow america? >> and so it goes, alex. the president leaving the white house just a little later this morning. >> mike viqueira, thank you very much. while the gop ticket is crisscrossing the crucial battleground state of ohio again today and mitt romn
that the romney campaign has. >> so would you concede -- i want to show our viewers the swing state polls are out, and you know what they say by and large. they say that in most cases in these swing states and, indeed, nationally, mitt romney is either closed the gap or he is now surpassed president obama in states that the president was ahead in. would you concede it was a pivotal debate that changed how folks looked at least at mitt romney? >> well, look, i think mitt romney's performance was, indeed, magical and theatrical. for 90 minutes he walked away from a campaign he had been running for more than six years previous to that. look, we always expect -- >> the president didn't call him on it at the time, so were you all aware of that? >> was i aware he was going to say i don't have a 5 trillion dollar tax plan, i love teachers. we ought to hire more, all in contradiction to specific campaign platforms and statements that he has made in the past. i don't think anybody expected that. i'm surprised -- i think maybe only mitt romney understood that he was going to walk away from -- >> that's not
our cnn poll of polls had a three-point edge, actually, at this point for governor romney. what decides this election, or is it multi-determined? >> it is multi-determined, and one thing you can bank on, the florida election will be close on election night, where i think -- >> do you think? >> maybe. maybe. i think -- i think it all depends on these next two debates. it's fair to say that i think, you know, governor romney has a three-point lead in some polls. mason dixon had him with a seven-point lead. i think it's in the three, four point range. this election could maybe not be close. >> do you sense it moving away from -- clearly, al senses it moving away from the president in florida. do you sense that? >> no, not at all. the obama team has registered more voters in florida than we ever dreamed to do. we've got more than 100 offices on the ground, but most importantly, the economic facts in florida -- florida went through a very difficult time. 220,000 new jobs in florida in the last 31 months. president supports a robust space program. the differences on medicare, the fact
cbs news poll shows mitt romney getting a post-debate bounce in two key states. >>> rescued from the wreckage. two people are pulled to safety in the aftermath of a deadly collapse at a parking garage. >>> diamond drama. post-season baseball heats up with two fantastic finishes. this is the "cbs morning news" for thursday, october 11, 2012. good morning, everybody, good to be with you. i'm terrell brown. debates between vice presidential candidates aren't supposed to matter but after president obama's poor debate performance last weeknight's faceoff between joe biden and paul ryan has turned into a high stakes affair. in colorado president obama held a slim lead in september now romney has a one-point edge. in wisconsin the president was leading by six points last month, he leads romney by just three points now. in virginia the president continues to hold on to a small lead. tara mergener is in washington following all of this. >> reporter: good morning. boy the pressure sure is on tonight particularly for joe biden who will be trying to gain ground following that first president
this week. here is charles cars. >> it's very felling, the pugh poll has romney head slightly beyond the margin of error. we were talking about the ones who are ex steamily likely to vote. romney among all the voters are extremely likely to vote, is up by 6 and three weeks ago he was down by 3. that's a nine-point swing among people who surely will be out there on election day. so i think right now the race is tied with romney still, i think, having some of the momentum from the debate and i think the rest of this story will be determined by the remaining debates. >> brian: i think what's interesting is that not only did he move ahead in most of the polls, and almost everybody, including president obama agrees that he lost debate. president obama has done after and all his people calling him a liar is unprecedented. >> steve: that's desperate. >> brian: it's not with a reagan did after he lost or george bush. i went back and asked the brain room what were some of the quotes. they were like we lost, but he's a better debater. not you're a liar and performer. having said that, there is
he was up, barak obama was, 18 points with women. in this new pugh poll, barak obama and mitt romney are now tied 47 apiece with women. >> gretchen: the also really important thing in this poll, it's extensive and long with many questions. but with this question, who did the better job in the debate? who are you trying to attract? e independents. 72% of them said mitt romney did better. only 14% of the independents polled said president obama did better. >> brian: charles krauthammer weighed in on the polling. many people are critical of the polling last week. if you're critical last week, you can't embrace them this week. here is charles cars. >> it's very felling, the pugh poll has romney head slightly beyond the margin of error. we were talking about the ones who are ex steamily likely to vote. romney among all the voters are extremely likely to vote, is up by 6 and three weeks ago he was down by 3. that's a nine-point swing among people who surely will be out there on election day. so i think right now the race is tied with romney still, i think, having some of the momentum from
't say any more that debates don't matter. the new cnn poll, poll of polls, mitt romney has a slight lead with likely voters, 48% to 47%. his performance certainly showed that you can't say it doesn't matter anymore. there is no bigger swing state than ohio, where you are. >> reporter: the history tells you no republican has ever been elected president without winning the state of ohio. can you do the math and have romney win without this state? yes. is it likely? no. before the debate some polls had him down as many as nine points in ohio. new cnn poll row leased last night has him down four, 51-47. another group, american research group show ed romney up a point in ohio. no question. just like in the national polls, a bit of a boost. romney is up in the suburbs, up among independents. there's signs of strength here from romney, we can tell you there are a few soft spots he needs to work on. >> john king in ohio, covering the debates as well. thank you very much. watch live coverage of the debate tomorrow night, 7:00 eastern. watch it on cnn or on cnn.com. >>> happening this morning, the
families. did romney get -- what do the polls show? did he get any bounce out of the presidential debate? >> it is looking that way, sure. the first polled a little bit -- the other ones are starting to tickle out, showing a little bit of movement in his way. these are bounces, though which is why they call them bounces. it is already coming back down -- the polls were moving in romney's direction a few days before the debate kind of that natural, kind of movement of polls post convention and this certainly accelerated it. so the jobs numbers probably helped slow the obama fall but now we move into another week people will be talking about biden, and then a couple of more with romney and obama. >> bill: yeah, i was surprised and impressed, i guess that obama proved -- so he didn't have a good night, we all know that, but i thought he bounced back pretty quickly the next day. he has been having a lot of fun with the big bird line. and it showed a lot of resilience, i thought, and as you point out the job numbers came on friday which gave him another little boost, c
. this is the first poll based entirely on interviews after the debate. mitt romney had a modest debate bounce. the question is will it be a blip or lasting change. >> gretchen: look at the university of colorado forecasting model. this is interesting. this is the only model that looks at the electoral college and you need those votes to be president. 330, of the 538 map are going to mitt romney. this is the same out fit in august or september or august 22nd prediction they said the same thing. but romney picked up five more points. >> steve: what they do. they look at economics of what is going on nationally and local and state level . they look at wealth and they look at unemployment and all sorts of stuff. they predict mitt romney will win these states. new mexico and that is new since they updated it and, north carolina and win virginia ohio new hampshire colorado, wisconsin and ohio and florida and barack will win michigan and nevada. >> gretchen: i don't think that romney will win minnesota. as a native of that state, that is in the obama camp. >> they say voters hold democrats more resp

. governor romney, of course, is experiencing polling momentum, and he is trying to build upon that with a foreign policy speech that he gave at the virginia military institute just an hour ago. president obama come in the meantime is in california on a campaign tour. the last 72 hours come we have seen a growing tide of political ads and remarks from campaign officials and surrogates with one central theme. mitt romney is a liar. here is a sample. >> are you saying that governor romney lied or was dishonest? >> yes, i think he was dishonest am absolutely. >> many people are pointing out what a liar mitt romney is. if he was talking are speaking last night, he was lying. >> you know, i think that we expected an aggressive debater to show up last night. we did not expect an aggressively dishonest debater to show it. and that is what we got with mitt romney. >> many people are saying that what they saw was that governor romney that they have known all along and has been the problem in the past and they haven't seen that person. that he finally emerged during the debate. >> so you

of the race. it does look like mitt romney is getting a bounce out of the debate. a gallup poll taken over seven days your bre break it down, in three days since the debate the race is tied at 47%. the three days prior to the debate, a five--point lead for president obama. that gone over the last three days. gallup asked who won the debate. last wednesday among debate watchers, 97% of republicans said mitt romney won, 70% of independents said mitt romney won, and 49% of democrats gave it to romney. >>> meanwhile president obama's debate performance left a big opening for the folks at "saturday night live." >> number 20 -- >> excuse me, governor. mr. president? >> i'm sorry. yeah. yeah, what's up? >> mr. president. governor has just said that he killed osama bin laden. would you care to respond? >> um, no, you two go ahead. >> not bad. big bird made a surprise appearance on weekend update, he took the high road when addressing romney's pledge to eliminate money for public television. mr. bird said he didn't want to ruffle any feathers. >> thank you very much. so as we inch toward election d
some of those catholic numbers have tilted more towards governor romney now. >> most polls certainly have changed since that debate including the swing states back to that partisan divide, governor. this was going to be the president that brought everyone together. what happened? is he the most partisan president in recent history? >> i have never remembered one that campaigned more in a partisan fashion nor governed in one. you know, look, in an election, presidents go out every office holder goes out and takes one for the team and does the party cheer. i get that i was with president bush many times in the campaign trail both in the 2000 election and in 2004 re-election. i never heard him go out and regularly blast every democrat all the time. he spoke more about what he was gonna do not what the democrats had done wrong. when you listen to barack obama it's blame blame blame. and it's also, if you look at how he governed, didn't get a single republic vote. when the republicans put something on the table. it doesn't even get brought up to be voted on by the senate. it is a very par
your cbs poll of your viewers was clearly, clearly stopped the romney momentum. clearly joe biden speaks to real people. he has a heart for real people. he is impassioned. he was relateabrelatable. he did what he had to do. >> 82 times interrupting congressman ryan. did he come off as rude? >> i don't think so. your polls shows that he came off as more relatable and he couldn't just let misstatements lie there. he had to step in otherwise -- >> we'll come back to the question. the next debate is becoming much more crucial. what did it do for the race between romney and obama? >> i think first of all i think each guy did what they had to do. remember paul ryan, this is his first big national moment. he was 2 years old when biden became a u.s. senator. biden has had a lifetime to be a national figure. last night in 90 minutes paul ryan much more than just getting the nomination, he became somebody who became real. people thought he was knowledgeable being competent, capable. so ryan is doing better. biden was biden. in 2008 in his famous debate with palin he says come with me to thi
debate both men under pressure governor romney building momentum after the first presidential dough bait. >> 50% said biden won, 31% said ryan won and 19% called it a tie. also in that poll 55% said biden is someone they can relate to. 21 points higher than before the debate. ryan's relatability went up 17 points to 48% and 85% said biden is knowledgeable about the issues and 75% said the same thing about paul ryan. jan crawford is at the debate site in danville, kentucky. jan, good morning. >> good morning, norah. good morning charlie. good morning to those of you in the west. the president tried to explain that lackluster performance at the debate of being too polite. the vice president surely can't say that about his performance last night. he came out of the block, never stopped. to the point republicans are now saying he interrupted paul ryan 82 times. >> with all due respect, that's a bunch of mularkey. >> the vice president appeared to take the president's advice. joe just needs to be joe. >> this is a bunch of stuff. look, here is the deal. >> biden's gi
and we see it in the polling too that people are feeling better about the direction of the economy. that may hurt romney's argument by saying, you know, that we have to switch leadership at this point. >> before i let you go, let us know what is coming up on meet the press this morning. >> we will talk about this in our own debate setting and one on one interview with steven colbert in character and out of character as he talks about the political race and system he tries to expose. >> sounds like a good show. we will be watching. david, thanks. >> ai thanks, lester. >> you can catch the next presidential debate news night at 9:00 eastern, 6 awning pacific here on nbc. >> tom is over at the news desk. hey, good morning. >> good morning jenna and lester. good morning, everyone. another person died from the outbreak of a rare form of meningitis. 15 people have died and 198 people have been infected in more than a dozen states. >>> overseas where the shooting of a girl while on hes her way home from school horrified people in pakistan and internationally. the girl was shot for promoti
pelosi will probably not get the gavel back from john boehner as speaker of the house, but the only poll they do is on election day. of course, at the presidential level, we have seen some of those polls moving in mitt romney's favor. but when you look at the house races, you have to bear in mind the presidential election is being fought in the ten battleground states, not really in all 50 states. so all of these brown ballot races are out there on their own and they are responded to their own forces, carl. >> thank you very much. can't wait until the next debate thursday night on cnbc. it's my first presidential election here. it's all new, shiny and bright. >> enjoy it while it lasts. >> thank you. >>> ahead on the show, the new game of risk for banks. the rules have changed but for investors something totally different could be in the cards. >>> and still to come, i'm taking a chance to go home. while the bully on the playground in the world economy could be losing influence. , a crash management system and the world's only tridion safety cell which can withstand over three and a half
's about time governor romney takes some responsibility. >> the vice president keeps the hits coming after his knockout debate with paul ryan. more than 51 million people watched the vice presidential debate. a post-debate poll released this afternoon from reuters found that 42% thought joe biden won the debate. 35% said paul ryan and 23% were not sure. rush limbaugh is sure. he knows exactly who to blame for those poll results showing joe biden winning. >> i you had told you it was in the card and preedictable ryan knew it. it isn't an excuse. you can get mad and say it is unfair but everybody else thought it was unfair and ruined. everybody thought it was a stacked deck. some of you may wish that ryan would have been feistier and not let him run all over him. my guess is he doesn't debate much. let biden be who we know he is going to be and realize you are in a two against one situation. >> nait nate silver forecast on president obama will win 283 and mitt romney will win 285 and. joining me are ezra klein and crystal ball. rush's job, is to counsel the depressed after last night's debat
mitt romney on this question. he didn't fix it. he's made it worse and i think that you're going to find, and i don't know what the polls are saying about this, i think you're going to find that voting against, barack obama, yes is an enthusiasm pusher for some on the right, but this question will keep some of them at that point ped down. >> i think he fixed it on the right. i think the problem is the position paul ryan has is not a popular position in the country. in the platform it's advocacy of an amendment to the constitution that would grant personhood 14th amendment rights to a fetus, to a fertilized egg. i mean, that's an extreme position which is -- that's the official position of the republican party. politics can be bitter and nasty. why that's a good thing coming up next. when you take a closer look... ...at the best schools in the world... ...you see they all have something very interesting in common. they have teachers... ...with a deeper knowledge of their subjects. as a result, their students achieve at a higher level. let's develop more stars in education. let's i
